    I guess I'm just silly, but I think cleaning it and lubing it eliminates one possible problem right from the get go.

    I agree, they don't need to be cleaned every time you shoot, but that one was dirty enough I'd clean it as part of troubleshooting.

    He said it wasn't cleaned OR lubed, so maybe he just needs to lube it good. I guess if it worked for Pat Rogers, it'll work for him.

    I would also not expect a action spring to be gone after one session and 400 rounds.

    One part I wasn't clear on: The lower/action spring has at least a few thousand rounds on it. The upper is brand new.

    Yeah, except in many cases cleaning it doesn't do much. If he only had 3-400 rounds on it, that wouldn't be enough to cause the issue at least in my experience.

    If I had a rifle with continuing malfunctions dry and dirty, id try to solve the problem dry and dirty. I do keep my weapons lubed, but I at least like to pretend i could rely on them if they werent

    For my edification please, is break-in a consideration when using quality parts?

    I get what both you and IG are saying.

    I do think that the don't need to clean them mantra is sometimes overdone.

    If you have a rifle as dirty as the one pictured lined up for home defense, you are nuts.

    Also, replace the BAD with a standard mag release and try it again.
